Chanel Byzance Collection 2011 Rouge Byzantin Rouge Allure Swatches and Reviews

I honestly do not need any more red lipsticks. I don't use them that often especially during the day. However, Rouge Byzantin is such a beautiful ruby red that I had to get it. It is also a Rouge Allure, my favourite formulation from Chanel. You can read a more detailed review of Rouge Allures here.

I put my other Chanel red lipsticks together for comparison. Rouge Byzantin looks more like a cool red on my arm, Passion is a warm red and Lune Russe looks like a burgandy.

It is love at first sight when I applied it on my lips. There is a rich metallic red look which somehow isn't shown in the picture. I found that it looks so good on its own that applying gloss over it would just spoil the look.
